BVCS Royals Athletics
As a small school BVCS is able to provide most students with the opportunity for competitive sports. Students who demonstrate a commitment to teamwork, training and practice will often have the opportunity to develop their ability through game time and teamwork. For many students, athletics form some of their most memorable and cherished experiences in high school. Team trips, provincial victories and nail-biter games, as well as heart-breaker losses all shape a group experience by which they’ve grown together.
We want to reflect a Christian attitude and approach in all that we do, including our athletics program. We do this through team prayer, striving to be excellent at our chosen sports, demonstrating graciousness in wins and losses and playing to the best of our ability. We support our coaching staff, encourage parent participation when appropriate, respect referees and officials and congratulate opponents on their wins.
At elementary levels, our priorities are on participation and skill development. As we move to higher levels, our priorities become more competitive and demands on players increase accordingly: we expect commitment from players and parents.
Single “A” Competitive Sports
Basketball and Volleyball
BVCS has a long history of high-level performance in our single “A” basketball and volleyball teams. Many provincial championship banners hang in our gymnasium as a testimony to the dedication of our students, coaches and parent volunteers. We value teamwork, healthy competition and excellence, and we strive to win. We do so, however, with a premium placed on sportsmanship.
Intramural Sports Culture
Our school has cultivated an exciting culture or intramural sports. We love to foster healthy competition as an avenue for celebrating community, and our kids have a blast enjoying all kinds of intramural sports, especially during the winter months when we spend so much time indoors. It’s a great opportunity to learn some of the sports we don’t compete in as a school, such as floor hockey, indoor soccer, wide games, 3-point competitions, ping pong tournaments and more.
A healthy Start
Sports in Elementary School
For the past number of years we have formed teams for students in grades 4 through 7 in basketball and volleyball. These teams are focussed on developing skills, resilience and teamwork. All students play game time as we compete against other schools and conduct our own intramural games.
